Last month, we learned that Maria Sharapova and Svetlana Kuznetsova had been named to the Russian Olympic team. Joining them are Elena Dementieva, Anna Chakvetadze, Vera Zvonareva, and Dinara Safina. The latter two have been named as a doubles team. Kuznetsova has been selected to play doubles with either Dementieva or Chakvetadze.
Dementieva is an Olympic silver medal holder in singles.
